[12 – 15 February 2008, Transvaal, The Hague] Transvaal is one of the ‘problem’ neighborhoods of The Hague, and one out of 40 similar neighbourhoods in the Netherlands undergoing complete restructuring (demolition). The second expert meeting of the project Laboratory of the Time In-Between (Laboratorium van de Tussentijd) in which STEALTH will take part is dedicated to “concepts for the time in-between”. The team of 15 artists and architects will be staying in a temporary Hotel Transvaal, with rooms spread through already emptied and ready for demolition houses! For more information (in Dutch), and location of the presentation of generated ideas on 15 February visit here.
The project is part of Laboratorium Transformatieruimte, initiated by Sabrina Lindemann (Mobile project office OpTrek) and Iris Schutten (architecture and public space). As part of the project, public lecture of Klaus Overmeyer (Urban Catalyst, Berlin) will take place at Stroom on 13 February.
